Palmdale, Quartz Hill, Notre Dame, Burroughs, and Knight will also be apart of today's action. The tournament was started in the summer of 2003 by ...
Marching band, check; 4.3 GPA, check; Key Club member, check; the Foothill League's No. 1 freshman tennis player, check.

Last season, he was almost perfect in league but as the old adage goes­ - almost doesn't count. His lone set loss came to Hart's Otto DeGreiff. DeGreiff graduated and Zapala's dominance resonated throughout the league, this season. He was successful in attaining his goal. The lanky Zapala was undefeated as ...
A curve ball was thrown and there was no hitter at the plate. This wasn't a baseball game. It was the Foothill League tennis prelims.
